Effective Self Defense Products for Woman and Man
Stun guns are moving to the forefront for citizens interested in non-lethal self defense products for a broad variety of situations. In a society where the perpetrator can sue the victim for injuries sustained during breaking and entering - and win - home safety and personal protection has taken on a different hue.
There was a time when it was considered acceptable to injure or kill anyone who was trespassing on your property or in the process of trying to enter a private residence uninvited. Law enforcement agents counseled private citizens to shoot to kill, then drag the body back inside the house before calling for help. Those days have come and gone.
Nowadays, an elderly woman can do time in prison for protecting herself from a would-be rapist who breaks into her home and even makes it all the way into her bedroom! She can be sued by the perpetrator if he survives or sued by the perpetrator's family if he dies. The sad part is that, in many cases, she will lose and go to the big house.
Ever increasing numbers of private citizens are turning to non lethal self defense products as effective interventions that can stop a crime in the making without killing the bad guy. Stun guns, TASERs (stun guns PLUS more), Mace, and pepper spray are examples of products for which the private citizen does not need a license to carry. While restrictions apply in roughly 8 states and several municipalities, as well as airports, schools, hospitals, etc., non lethal self defense products are allowed in most areas in the United States.
Stun guns are effective for several reasons.
1.Stun guns come in a huge range of sizes. They can be a real big surprise to would-be perpetrators. One little model can deliver a million volts of stopping power even though it is a little smaller than a pack of cigarettes.
2.Stun guns are now available in an incredibly broad price range. This means that virtually anyone can purchase peace of mind in whatever price point the budget will bear.
3.Another surprise is that some serious stopping power can be had for a very reasonable price. The natural result is that protection is not only a good idea, but it is also doable for the average citizen.
4.Stun guns come in an amazing array of sizes, shapes, and colors! While the vast majority of them are standard issue black, some models are also available in pink, red, silver, animal prints, and even camouflage. That means safety can also be fashionable. Heck, at least one model comes equipped with a built-in MP3 player: Safety and Sound!
5.Choosing a non lethal self defense product tends to alleviate the fear of legal reprisals which are so often the case when firearms are used, even in self defense. The American legal system can no longer be counted on to convict the guilty and protect the victims of violent crime.
What's the answer? Protect yourself to the best of your ability while minimizing the likelihood of harm to yourself, your family, your property, and your financial statement.
